Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks, the free-to-play multiplayer combat racer, will be roaring into Open Beta on May 23rd as it returns to the Warhammer SKULLS Festival of Video Games.  This version of the game unleashes a unique and stompy new game mode for players to get their hands on. The Open Beta is available on Steam from May 23rd, 18h00 BST to May 30th 18h00 BST.

In the 41st Millennium, a kult of speed-obsessed Orks have emerged  to gather an immense Speedwaaagh!

These ‘Speed Freeks’ are addicted to high-speed combat with the fastest, shootiest, pulse-pounding, brain-rattling, combination of dakka andrecklessness, they bring their supercharged mob of buggies and tanks into the Speedwaaagh!  Hell-bent on gunning down their rivals and trashing everything in their path, these Orks race through battle attempting to prove themselves as “da fastest Orks in all da galaxy”.

Kill Konvoy is the new and explosive high ork-tane racing mode where two 8v8 teams each have a giant Stompa that they’re helping to get to the finish line first.  Players must strategize using effective vehicle combinations and kunnin’ tactics to destroy their opponents and gain morale, while also picking up powerful bombs to deliver and detonate on the enemy Stoma to slow it down.  The Beta boasts seven playable vehicles and two epic battlefields for players to get stuck into. 

To access the Beta on Steam, users will need to set up or log into a PROS, an online services account for upcoming games from PLAION, Saber Interactive, Deep Silver, and more.  PROS accounts offer additional in-game rewards, extended stats, community benefits and other features.  You can find out more about PROS here https://prismray.io/
